    3 is just asking, "Suppose the graph continued. What would it look like?"

    For 4- you are correct. The "domain" is the dates given and is initially "restricted" to between 1997 and 2001. If it were "unrestricted", that is, if you assume the function will be correct for later dates, what value would your functions give for 2007?
